Please join us for our annual recital with the Brookfield-Jordan Vocal Studio. If you have attended in previous years, you know what an exciting musical event this is. If not, don't expect an ORDINARY recital. This year will be bigger and better than ever.
This year we are presenting two shows. The curtain-raiser is Mozart's Operatic masterpiece, COSI FAN TUTTE, which will be sung mostly in Italian with English commentary so you will know what's going on. COSI is a comedy of love. Two couples somehow fall for each other's betrothed with the help of a meddling friend and a saucy maid. All's well that ends well and true love triumphs. The singers will knock off your socks!
The second act will keep you guessing with THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD. You, the audience, get to decide the conclusion in this merry romp in old England that helps to answer the questions posed by Charles Dickens' unfinished last novel. The theatrical "4th wall" virtually disappears as the singers/actors engage you.
Admission is $5.00 and tickets may be purchased through Sherri or Gary, at the door (we'd prefer you book in advance) or by sending a check and self-addressed envelope to the Brookfield's address.

There you are, a nice little invitation and everything. Everyone has been working extremely hard to make sure this year is a success, and I'm sure that it will be. I will be performing as Despina in the opera on Sunday; it should be excellent fun. =) Oh, and also... I made a blog for the studio I perform with. It's very rudimentary at the moment; it's just a basic outline of what it should look like right now. But before long, it'll have all the information on it that it should. I've put the address in my links section, but for good measure, I'll put it over here too:
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer; I certainly am.
In summer, the song sings itself. ~William Carlos Williams, US poet (1883-1963)
